Oliver Wyman has strengthened its senior team in Australia with Frank Tudor, a 40-year energy industry veteran and former National Chair of Energy Networks Australia.

Frank Tudor brings over 40 years of experience in the energy sector across Australia, Europe, and Asia to the global management consultancy firm.

Most recently, Tudor was managing director of Jemena, a company that owns, manages or operates energy infrastructure assets in the nation’s eastern states including Queensland and New South Wales, and gas pipelines and gas and electricity distribution networks in several states.

In a LinkedIn post late 2023 announcing his stepping down, Tudor said that he looked back with great pride to the company’s achievements. On his next steps, he said he had the ambition to “remain involved in Australia’s energy industry as we tackle what really is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reshape our energy system for the betterment of future generations.”

That ambition is now being handed to him at Oliver Wyman, where he has been appointed a Senior Advisor. In the role, he will work closely with the firm’s clients and consultants to address the opportunities and challenges the utilities sector is facing in Australia’s energy transition to net zero.

“We’re excited to welcome Frank to Oliver Wyman,” said Ed Emanuel, Oliver Wyman’s Market Leader for Australia and New Zealand. “His extensive experience in the energy sector across Australia, Europe, and Asia complements our deep industry experience in the energy and utilities sector.”

“Frank brings a wealth of knowledge from prior senior positions at some of Australia’s major utility infrastructure. This will enhance our ability to support clients who are facing opportunities and challenges when it comes to a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reshape our energy and utility systems.”

Other past roles of Tudor have included Managing Director of Jemena, Chair of Zinfra, and Deputy Chair of ActewAGL. Prior to that, he spent nearly a decade as the Managing Director of Horizon Power which received industry recognition for its work in pioneering advanced microgrid developments to host ever increasing levels of distributed renewable-energy resources, digital innovation in the energy industry and standalone power systems.

Tudor has also held various key industry roles as the National Chair of Energy Networks Australia and the National Chair of The Energy Charter (Australia). He was a member of the Australian Energy Market Operator’s Expert Panel advising on National Electricity Market reform, and an advisor to the Australian Energy Security Board on their post 2025 energy transformation work.

Commenting on his new challenge, Tudor said: “I am extremely passionate about the global energy industry, Australia’s energy security, and our energy transformation to net-zero. In joining Oliver Wyman, I found a firm that shares the same commitment and is enabling organizations globally to seize opportunities while addressing the challenges of transitioning society to a net-zero world.”
